If you’ve ever fancied indoor skydiving, this is the mall to visit in Dubai. It’s evidence that our malls aren’t just about the shopping – it’s the whole entertainment experience.

Beyond skydiving, Mirdif City Centre is popular with families because of all the other activities: bowling, a climbing wall, a soccer circus and an arcade with game simulators and rides to keep the youngsters (and young at heart) busy. Add to this a 10-screen VOX cinema, 80 eateries and a Carrefour supermarket, and you could easily spend all day at this easy-to-navigate mall. If you do come for the shopping, you’ll find over 260 brands including Debenhams, Forever 21 and Pottery Barn.
